From Immobilized Cells to Motile Cells on a Bed-of-nails: Effects of Vertical Nanowire Array Density on Cell Behavior

Authors: H. Persson et al.

Journal: Scientific reports (2015)

Institution: Lund University

Research Areas: Nanowire

Cell Lines: L929 (Mouse fibroblasts)

Summary: Under­standing of the inter­actions between cells and nanowires. The results provide guidelines to minimize cellular stress on nanowire arrays. Additionally, the findings show that cell behavior can be controlled by adjusting nanowire density, which may have applications in drug development.

Keywords: HoloMonitor M3, Cell migration, Cell division, Cell morphology
